Public Installation featuring new work from Carla Gannis in conjunction with CYFEST NYC
In conjunction with the New York premier of CYFEST 10’s Digital Media Program, Carla Gannis was invited to create a public art installation at the Made in New York Media Center by IFP.
ABOUT THE INSTALLATION:
“A Subject Self-Defined” is a new body of work from Carla Gannis that addresses issues of branded identity; age and body estimation; catastrophe culture; and online agency via static, dynamic and interactive “selfie” imagery. In ‘A Subject Self-Defined,’ the viewer is provided multiple vantage points that traverses various forms of self-portraiture and mixed-media methodologies. Her series converges a wide array of technologies – drawing, painting, animation, social media, and augmented reality – together to serve as the artist herself re-represents herself.” – Dorothy Santos, 2016
